The current TMCA president chooses an annual Chapter of the Year from one of the 17 TMCA chapters. The purpose of the award is to recognize a chapter that has provided its membership with the best overall programs, activities, and benefit over the past year. TMCA chapter officers or members are encouraged to submit a summary to the TMCA president that includes the chapter’s service that year to its members in the area of education and professional development, and any other ways it has been a benefit to its members. The first Chapter of the Year Award was presented in 2019.
The Chapter of the Year Award is presented at the Annual TMCA Awards Banquet—held at the TMCCP Advanced Institute Seminar in the fall.
TMCA’s President’s Choice Award is presented each year by the current TMCA president. Up to two awards may be given annually. While there is no predetermined criteria for the award, the president shall state why the recipient(s) was selected. The award is generally presented for exemplary service, persistence through adversity, support to others, or other acts that are considered beyond the bounds of what is generally expected. The first President's Choice Awards were presented in 2019.
The award(s) is presented at the Annual TMCA Awards Banquet—held at the TMCCP Advanced Institute Seminar in the fall.
